Daria and Made Will Be Revived at MTV

Studios, the new production arm of MTV, has announced plans to reboot its popular '90s animated series Daria, Variety reports. Here's what MTV president Chris McCarthy had to say in a statement.

Redubbed Daria & Jodie, the new animated series from writer Grace Edwards (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Inside Amy Schumer) will be told through the eyes of Daria Morgendorffer and her close friend Jodie Landon as they take on the world with sharp-eyed satirical wit, deconstructing pop culture, social classes, gender and race.

The show's revival is part of a larger strategy to develop new series and find ways to bring back iconic properties from the network's 35-year history, work that will be done via MTV Studios, a new unit announced Thursday.

MTV Studios will also reimagine "Aeon Flux" in a live-action remake by executive producers Jeff Davis of "Teen Wolf" and Gale Ann Hurd of "The Walking Dead". The announcement didn't reveal production schedules for any of these shows on its programming slate quite yet. The show is also said to, "strip away the polarization and cold anonymity of social media, the din of the 24-hour news cycle, and the facades of the instafamous culture", following seven strangers who, "stop being polite and start being real".

MTV's Made ran from 2003 to 2013, which followed teenagers who were paired with life coaches to help make their dreams come true.

According to Deadline, shows like The Real World, Aeon Flux, andDaria & Jodie are all being pitched to streaming platforms, including Hulu, Netflix, and Apple.

MTV's groundbreaking reality series The Real World, about twentysomethings living under one roof, plus the Emmy-winning unscripted series Made, about young people wanting to learn a specialized skill, will also get an update.
